I did an autorun to try and speed up my computer. When I did a search of the following line that appears:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exeUserinit Logon Application Microsoft Corporation c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

it looks to me from a startup data search like it is a trojan of some sort. But when I try to turn it off I get a message telling me "deleting or disabling it will prevent users from logging on" so I am afraid to disable it. Can someone tell if I should disable it?
